(1 customer review)


Veronica possesses a natural affinity for training dogs and a passion for locating missing people. As “Lawyers, Dogs, and Money” unfolds, Veronica trains peanut allergy alert and prison contraband sniffing dogs and joins her search and rescue colleague, a Deputy Sheriff for Boulder County, in trying to ascertain the source of threats against Kadri Ilves, a co-worker of Sgt. Donovan’s daughter at a high-end import/export business. 

The woman being targeted is a native of Estonia and has a long history of advocating for social justice causes. As efforts to harm Kadri escalate in an alarming fashion, Veronica’s team and Sgt. Donovan desperately attempt to pinpoint the person behind the threats. Veronica’s father assists the investigation by researching Kadri’s background, including her work to end racial disparity in prison sentencing, and legal claims she has filed relative to disputed lands in Estonia.

Has Kadri put herself in the crosshairs of the California branch of the Russian Mafia? Can Veronica and her canine partner, Leda, save Kadri before events turn deadly?

    I did enjoy this book but found I struggled to get into the story to start with. The author went into too much detail about things that wasn’t relevant to the case, like the colour of the spring flowers that were in bloom and she repeated things a number of times. I just found this distracted from the story and it took a while for me to get emotionally invested in the main case, especially has that needed a history lesson too. It seemed like maybe she was being paid for the number of words used. Having said all that once I understand what was going on I did like the story. Sorry I think so far I have actually liked the idea of the series than the execution. The characters are likeable enough and I love the dogs, especially when the dogs are working and doing there thing. The mystery was fairly slow to get going, especially as the dogs were needed on side missions and training and it wasn’t A who done it mystery, just the main character reacting to what was happening.
    Veronica is a dog trainer working with dogs and there owners to teach them to pick up on peanut allergies or protection. So when a friend of a friend asks for a protection dog, she jumps at the chance to help. When her house is broken into, even Veronica’s dad helps with surveillance equipment. When the lady is attacked its all hands on deck, as the team tried to work out why she is a target and it anybody else is in danger. Can Veronica and her clever K9’s keep everybody safe?
    The narrator is fine to listen to but I wouldn’t say she had a wide range of voices for the characters.
